    I am 63, and new to the forum. I have 18 guns on my carry permit, and carry both revolver (usually S&W) and semi's (several makes). If it goes boom, I like it.

    The only revolvers I own are a pair of twin smith and wesson .22's, my grandfather gave them to me when I was young because he knew I liked pistols (although he would have rather had me be a shotgunner) they are beautiful for this reason. However, the reliability on them in not well, if you don't take care of your revolver, it will go to hell. Thats why i like polymer pistols (i take very good care of them) but I don't have to...

    I think my grandfather also left me before his passing, a .44 Colt Python and a .380 PPk, my uncle took them though (his right because it was his father) but still I do wish I would have gotten these, how fun would a .44 wheel gun be? Screw the ppk...lol (ok Id like it too)

    Were these .22's ever dry fired? If so, the firing pin or cylinder may be damaged. How much have they been used? Do they have any non-original parts or gunsmithing by someone who is not a gunsmith? I will take any Ruger revolver and do a shot for shot test against your polymer semi-auto in a real world test and see which has the first malfunction.

    66 YO here. I own a few semi autos but I started with a Colt Bisley in 1956 and have preferred revolvers ever since, my current passion is older Colt DA, mostly 38 and 32 caliber. I have Colt, S&W, Ruger, Taurus, Rossi and have had Iver Johnson, H&R, and a few others over the years. Now, at this time in my life I shoot revolvers so that I don't have to pick up my cases, I just eject them into the collector ammo can, makes shooting much more enjoyable.

    21-29 eh?

    This poll is really interesting. The number of people above 50 is nearly equal to the number below. It's weird to me, several other forums I'm involved with maybe have a handful of folks over 50...

    wonder why so many on a handgun site? people into handgun's live longer? :P or....

    Poncaguy-- you know what, I think you are absolutely correct....I first bought a SR9....shot it thought wow...that's a big gun....the trigger was snappy and...hopefully, I'll get better...then I found a Sig 250sc 9mm....love the size..love the feel, the trigger is something I am having to get use to...as a carry piece I think it probably is perfect, but the snappy feel of the Ruger's trigger is always in the back of my mind....Now, I need to get a Ruger SR9c....oh well,...but Ruger is incredible. I do appreciate the long trigger now that I realize Sig designed the SubCompact as a carry gun....I look at them as what I can shoot well and what fits me. I have never been big on carrying because of the consequences that may happen...but for a range pistol I love the Ruger's trigger.

    Still goes back to car guy ford chevy arguement.I'm 57 and love both equally except for a polymer frame.Weight reduction is nice but the drawback is increased recoil.I read a article on a test for weapon choice for women.The polymer frame .380 was the least favorite because of recoil.Yes I'm so old I dust,but I prefer all steel in my weapon.Plastic is fine for grips but that is all in my book.The same was said about Eugene Stoners M-16 when 1st fielded in large numbers.It was called a mattel toy.It is now an iconic battle proven weapon system.Now alot of high grade rifle stocks are fiberglass or polymer based.I like a good quality snubby with a bobbed or shrouded hammer for the fact it can be fired through a jacket pocket without binding or a contact against shot fired without binding in the clothing with in which a semi could possibly bind up when the slide cycles.I carry a small CZ-82 because I am comfortable with carrying a 1911 in cocked and locked but this one has the ability to carry with hammer at half cock against a transfer bar like a revolver making 1st shot double action without worrying about a safety lever .The pull is a little stiffer but after the 1st round it has a great pull and I have 12 more rounds available.
